Colour Crazy Challenge – Wk 3: Anything Goes – Blog Candy

Hello! How are you?!

It’s time for a new challenge over on THE COLOUR CRAZY CHALLENGE BLOG and our weekly theme is always ‘Anything Goes’! There is a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out THE BLOG  for details.  But don’t forget we do require you to include SOME COLOURING (any medium you like) on your entry…that is what we’re all about after all!

Well I feel as if I need to add a disclaimer to the start of this post so here we go:
ANYONE OF A NERVOUS DISPOSITION, A FEAR OF BIG TEETH OR DODGY DIE-CUTTING CONSTRUCTION PLEASE LOOK AWAY NOW!!!

Has everyone gone? Well for those brave enough to remain here is my card for this week’s challenge and I have used a Polkadoodles Clear Stamp called PIP MONSTER COSTUME ONESIE ...he is one of 2 Stamps of the Month for January, isn’t he a cutie. 
OK so you could not fail to notice that PIP is not alone on this design so let me introduce you to Mitre Mouth (so called as his top teeth are made from the Polkadoodles FABULOUS MITRED THINGS die set). His other ‘parts’ are made from other various Polkadoodles dies (listed below).  Yes he is hideous I grant you… but I dare you to say that to his face!!!
Have to say that PIP does not look too bothered at all...far too busy playing with his eyeball yoyo! Ewwww!

Ingredients:
Colouring: SKIN: E43 (Copic) + 75, 76, 80, 82 (Lyra Pencil) + Medium Flesh (FC Polychromos) – HAIR: BGR4 (Spectrum Noir) + 99 (L) – PURPLE: Lilac (Promarker) + 41, 36, 38 (L) – GREEN: LG3 (SN) + 68, 70, 71 (L) – ORANGE: OR1 (SN) + 15, 13, 9 (L)
Colouring Paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Others: Faux Stitching – White Gel Pen

So visit THE BLOG and join in with our fab colouring challenge, and as it is Anything Goes you have no excuse!!!  And if you love colouring why not share your makes with us in our FB GROUP! We would love to see you.

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments and have a wonderful weekend!

See ya!
